United Nations' "Skincare"
This spot opens like a beauty product demo as we see a woman applying a skin creme to her face on "day one." The twist is that she starts out with a perfect complexion and as we move through subsequent days, the creme makes her face look progressively worse, with breakouts of acne and what look like open sores. Turns out the label on the beauty product jar is marked "Racism." A voiceover relates, "The more you apply it, the uglier you get."
